Shock are tops

Hands down, the Spokane Shock are the best team in the AFL. They proved that last night when they rolled past the Tulsa Talons 63-42, and the formerly No. 1 ranked Jacksonville Sharks fell 70-48 to to Orlando. Spokane improves to 8-2 on the season.

“You have to give all the credit to the guys, they’ve been working so hard to be No. 1,” head coach Rob Keefe said. “If we are No. 1, there’s a responsibility that comes with that. Everyone is going to be gunning for us. We can’t let up.” Spokane (8-2) has had easier wins this season, but Friday’s may have been its most complete effort.

“Our guys are starting to understand what we expect of them, that non-stop aggressiveness, that inner drive. A lot of arena football is just being aware of what’s going on around you and having stamina. Our guys understand it’s four quarters, not two and a half.” Rowley bounced back from a three-interception performance last week with 307 yards passing. Vijil had another big night with 11 catches for 103 yards. He has 1,029 yards receiving and 31 TD catches this season.

They'll travel to Milwaukee next week, the same team that handed them an opening season loss. Time for redemption?
